Temporary


I’ve spent my life building heavy stone to the sunrnI’ve spent my life building temporary love so I could runrnKeeping out strangers from coming towards mernKeeping the ones near me to pull threads that let me breathe rnI lived those days waiting; expecting them to leavernrnI’ve spent my life being alone with faded love that I’ve never knownrnI gave my heart to what I’ve only known to be familiarrnI’ve only loved a liar rnI’ve only loved temporary wordsrnI’ve only loved words that were emptyrnI’ve only loved what wasn’t there at allrnrnI’ve spent my life to be confusedrnInviting only those who abused rnI’ve spent my life building heavy walls to the sunrnI’ve spent my life knowing how to runrnI’ve spent my life realizing I’ve only been temporary love
